Sprouted Grain Buttermilk Biscuits

 

My favorite biscuits are Baking Powder Biscuits from Kraft (https://www.myfoodandfamily.com/recipe/051722/baking-powder-biscuits). Out of all of the recipes I have ever tried, these always turn out fantastic. So, I thought I would try to adapt that recipe for my sprouted grain flour. I think I have a winner!

Sprouted Grain Buttermilk Biscuits
8 – 10 biscuits

2 cups sprouted grain flour (or whole wheat)
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup COLD butter, cut into cubes
1 cup buttermilk (for quick buttermilk, add roughly 1 teaspoon vinegar to 1 cup of milk)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients. Add the cubed butter and cut it into the flour (you can use a fork or a pastry blender) until the butter is about the size of a dried pea. Add the buttermilk and mix until almost all of the flour in incorporated (do not mix too much or the biscuits will be dense).

Sprinkle flour on your countertop and scoop out the biscuit dough. Gently fold the dough until it becomes more solid (roughly 20 times), only adding flour to prevent it sticking to your hands or countertop. Pat flat so the dough is at least 1/2 inch thick.

If you want circles, cut with any item that is at least 2 inches round (a biscuit cutter, a drinking glass, an empty food can, etc.). If you want squares, just cut with a knife. Place biscuits on the parchment-lined baking sheet an bake for 8 to 12 minutes (until the edges start to brown). Let cool a few minutes, then split with a fork (use the tines of a fork to split the biscuit instead of a knife). Serve.
